Call for Papers
The 2019 International Paper Money Show is a great opportunity for collectors and researchers to share their knowledge with the community. Here's an excerpt from the Call for Papers.
International Paper Money Show
June 13 (Thursday) -16 (Sunday), 2019
Sheraton Kansas City Crown Center Hotel
Kansas City, Kansas
Kansas City here we come!
IPMS is the paper money speaking event of the year! Gain the cachet of giving your great presentation at the IPMS!
Show information at: http://www.ipmskansascity.com/
We invite presentations on any fiscal paper or fiscal paper tie-in topic. We will have a packed program. We always want new speakers with new topics! Please pass this on to anyone you think might
want to contribute.
Deadline for submissions is April 1, 2019
Talks are scheduled on Friday and Saturday (June 14 & 15) on the hour. Each speaker is allotted 50 minutes, which includes time for questions.
You are encouraged to mount a parallel exhibit in the exhibition area. Check the IPMS website for exhibit details.
As chair of this thing, what I am always looking for is CREATIVITY. I am wide open to any viable topic pertaining to any facet of paper currency or collectable monetary paper instruments,
particularly talks that place collectables in some larger, even unexpected, context. The programs that draw are those that contain NEW RED MEAT - particularly if the coverage involves the PEOPLE and
ACTION behind the notes, be it those who were responsible for an historic event involving some collectable or those who made a truly significant contribution to numismatics.
Top draws have been presentations on the Treasury officials in the FDR Treasury who redefined U. S. currency and in the process saved the economic fabric of the country during the Great Depression
and the story of Col. Green who singlehandedly was responsible for saving the vast majority of number 1 Series of 1929 national bank notes.
Which talk would you rather attend? Would you prefer to engage Key Pittman as one of the greatest numismatic heroes or one of the greatest numismatic villains or would you prefer to delve into an
arcane discourse on some minute engraving variety on some early $1 silver certificate? Just pitch something to me that successfully answers this challenge and you'll be welcomed with open arms.
More than this, I simply can't say.
